[audio]Drone Wallah - Womble-cropped [wh138] - CP McDill
Drone Wallah's new collection for Fall 2010 presents four glamorous drones in a variety of edgy styles and colors. Drone Wallah is a recording project of CP McDill (Saluki Regicide, Djinnestan, Akashic Crow's Nest, Tree Helicopter) focused on long, shimmery works of drone ambient.

[audio]Saluki Regicide - The Shades to Appease [wh143] - CP McDill
Saluki Regicide returns to Webbed Hand with a long-awaited sequel to "Mirage Emigrants" [wh012] -- an album full of atmospheric sound textures and evocative samples. More work from a recording project described as "haunted head music to disturb your inner child." Saluki Regicide was the first major project of C.P. McDill and he still considers it his primary one. It was originally most active 2003-04, then sporadically thereafter, usually in the form of collaborations and long-form works...

Straight-ahead, catchy, dark electronica. Good headphone music (like everything else we offer, actually). This project is a spinoff from Rolling Calf Sinfonette, with oblique and obscure sci-fi and conspiracy references sprinkled throughout. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release.

A compilation of recent sound experiments by C.P. McDill that fall outside of the style of his main recording projects. About the album: "For the past year and a half, I've been recording many sound experiments that don't fit in with my usual stuff. I can to some degree credit this to an ongoing creative challenge project called Disquiet Junto, which has gathered a large community of experimentalists over at Soundcloud (soundcloud.com/groups/disquiet-junto/)...

[audio]Rolling Calf Sinfonette - Don't Mind If I Do [wh003] - C.P. McDill
The clever and versatile digital artistry of RCS gets shown to best effect in this album. Catchy and accessible sampletronica, it ranges from dark to whimsical to bizarre. From the giant-robot bellydance sound of "Macedoine" to the incorrect plunderphonics of "Nothing In My Dream" to the mellow warmth of "Cozy," these recordings exemplify the humanity and playfulness of Rolling Calf Sinfonette.

[audio]Saluki Regicide - Dematerialized [wh001] - C.P. McDill
Saluki Regicide's first album of soundtracks for weird dreams, these peculiar sonic paintings are less music than opiate science fiction. This is headphone music for playing in the dark, plain and simple. The work of Saluki Regicide is a transmission from one synaesthetic consciousness to another. Simultaneously dark and witty, it engages your mind and leads it to some very strange places. Thank you for listening to this Webbed Hand Records release...

The mystery that is Djinnestan returns with another addition to the ever popular Rain series. The setting here comes across not as a fairytale forest, as in Rain 1, rather more like some ancient abandoned city on the edge of a desert, as viewed in a grainy film. For some of more sensitive intuition, not empty at all but bustling with ghosts. Rain is a series of conceptual CDs produced under the auspices of Webbed Hand Records...

This is the first long-form recording by Saluki Regicide outside of the Rain project.

An early document has surfaced which exposes some of the roots of the Webbed Hand sound of C.P. McDill. An untitled tape made in December of 1993, then set aside, which somehow survived many moves and purges of belongings. Out of numerous recordings I made in the late 80s - early 90s, this is the only one that wasn't lost. Thanks to the recent acquisition of a mixer similar to the one the tape was recorded on, I was able to finally transfer the tape to digital and give it a proper mixdown and ma...

Further exploration of atmospheric improvisations on heavily effected guitar characterize this sequel to "The Goat Encompasses." Ice Guild Kaiser is a recording project of C.P. McDill and is a sub-project of Saluki Regicide in ways that are difficult to define. Is it a variant personality, a mutation, a doppelganger, or an entirely new form of life? Still finding its way, perhaps we shall see it mature into its own person, though we are aware that the apple seldom falls far from the tree.....

Akashic Crow's Nest ventures into a new stage of transmutation with this soothing alchemy-themed album. The sound of Akashic Crow's Nest begins with the use of an image synthesizer which turns very long photographic images into audio output, in the manner of a piano roll. The initial part of composing this music is thus designing the picture. For this latest project, the first audio output is converted to midi and run through a different softsynth, before being subjected to a battery of effects ...

Kittenhead is the latest long-form (CD-length) production by Djinnestan, departing significantly from the Rain series and Purr. In many ways, it defies easy categorization. It is very ambient, but contains rhythms. It is dark, yet at the same time whimsical. It includes acoustic instruments and vocals, but they have been processed virtually beyond recognition. Nonetheless it is a subtle and pleasant listen...

Djinnestan's art consists of heavily processed acoustic, electronic, and sampled sounds, woven into rich sonic textures. It evolved out of several of my earlier recording projects (Saluki Regicide, Tree Helicopter, Akashic Crow's Nest), and has in many ways superceded them...

Purr is a 76 minute ambient track intended to be played at low volume as background ambience, preferably as you go to sleep. It generates a warm and cozy feeling, like having a cat purring next to your head. With a high fidelity stereo system possessing good bass response, some of the infrasonic qualities will come through, thus adding to the trancey and hypnotic effect of the work. It is my feeling, based on some study of infrasound, that what one hears as a cat's purr is only part of the spect...

[audio]Akashic Crow's Nest - Rain 1 [wh011] - C.P. McDill
Akashic Crow's Nest offers its own peculiar take on Webbed Hand Records' Rain series of album-length ambient releases. The ACN sound is distinguished by the use of an image synthesizer (pictures are translated into sounds) to produce most of the auditory elements used in its compositions. Very peculiar but often remarkably musical and uncannily magical. Rain is a series of conceptual CDs produced under the auspices of Webbed Hand Records...

[audio]Webbed Hand Presents String Ambient [wh101] - C.P. McDill
Our first compilation for 2008 presents a facet of ambient music that is often overlooked in favor of the more electronic or synthesized soundscapes. Here we have an eclectic collection of works featuring a broad variety string instruments, usually but not always treated to effects. In the artist credits below we've provided information about the instruments used, and you can see they range from the familiar to the exotic...

[audio]Ice Guild Kaiser - Rain 2 [wh235] - C.P. McDill
Ice Guild Kaiser's second Rain album combines nature sounds, gentle synth loops, string instruments and processed sounds, the sum of which is a meditative soundscape. Ice Guild Kaiser is a recording project of C.P. McDill, and is considered a side project of Saluki Regicide, also available on Webbed Hand. This track has as a foundation a lightly processed field recording, and is layered with strummed or finger-picked string instruments, abstract synthesizer loops, and other sounds processed beyo...

[audio]Tree Helicopter - Moon Calf [wh014] - C.P. McDill
A project which began as a spinoff of Saluki Regicide, but which took on a personality of its own as a pattern began to emerge. This is a peculiar sound art of a very diverse nature, but unified by the presence of Shortwave signals. These bizarre tracks may bend your mind, if you are in a susceptible state. An eclectic CD alternating between abstract and rhythmic, this body of work is dedicated to those who get the warm-n-fuzzies from hunching over shortwave radios, grooving on static and foreig...

[audio]Akashic Crow's Nest - Poste Restante [wh090] - C.P. McDill
C.P. McDill kicks off 2008 with a new release from Akashic Crow's Nest. Drones, sparkles, shimmers, vague rhythms & melodies carry the listeners on a weird introspective trip. This is good headphone music. The recordings of Akashic Crow’s Nest are created by first making a very long thin picture file that functions much like a piano roll, which is then fed into a software synthesizer which reads the picture from left to right, pixel by pixel, and translates the values into tones, adding variab...

[audio]Akashic Crow's Nest - Skidbladni [wh021] - C.P. McDill
Skidbladni is a second, shorter release by Akashic Crow's Nest. The concept here is dream logic, temporal dislocation, and auditory hallucination. The music is constructed entirely from the output of an image synthesizer (which turns pictures into sounds), with effects added, but no other instruments or samples.Skidbladni. A ship made by the dwarfs, large enough to hold all the gods, but which could be folded together like a sheet of paper, and put into a purse when not required for use...

Remastered, and in some instances remixed, this "best of" collection by Saluki Regicide revisits important moments in the sound art of C.P. McDill. About the album: "Saluki Regicide is one of my oldest recording projects. One in which I attempt to create dark and eerie, yet abstract, atmospheres with heavily processed sounds and samples. Loops of exotic instrumentation and snippets of voice from vintage sources are characteristic motifs...
